“The Zoom 707II”

published 09/09/2005

ProCheap, Simple to Use

ContraQuality of effects aren't great

The Zoom 707 II is the slightly newer version of the 707. It has everything the 707 has plus the ability to insert a smart media card, which you can use to longer record samples, and/or exchange patches (the name given to the setting of the pedal, i.e. distortion, reverb settings etc...) on the...

ProCheap, simple to use

ContraTruely horrible distortion

I received a Zoom GFX-707 for Christmas several years ago, and thought when I first got it that it was the greatest thing ever. I spent days playing with all the different effects (usually creating the most distortion possible) and loved it. But as the years have drawn by and my playing and ear...

“An excellent effects box.”

published 26/08/2002

ProGreat variety of effects, and easy to operate.

ContraThere's now a Zoom 707 II!

I bought my Zoom 707 on a whim, seeing it in a shop window, not too happy with what I had - and it was only 95 pounds. It is without doubt the best value piece of musical gear I have ever purchased. It continues to amaze me even after 2 and a half years of extensive use. Such a small box, it...

“pure pedal power”

published 01/06/2001

Progood value for money, lots to do

Contracant think of many

This pedal is seems to have it all. The boys at Zoom have yet again come up with another pedal crammed with effects. These range from powerful distortions that make you feel like a metal god when thrasing something out (well my mate does when he tries and play my guitar.....pure noise pollution...

“Good fun to use”

published 17/11/2005

ProAlot of different Patches, Very adjustable

ContraWeak Connections

I have had the Zoom GFX-707 now for many a moon, and it was a great buy at the time, as it went up in price due to demand just after i bought it. However the tide has gone, and the market has changed. The 707 is no longer the best product on the market, nor is it best value for money. It does...

“Beginners only”

published 12/09/2002

ProGood for first pedal

ContraBad build quality

I bought this pedal on ebay.co.uk for around £65 in an auction, although i've seen them in music shops for around £100-£110. Firstly, after finding out the RRP I am glad I bought this for less, as for the actual price i'd definately expect atleast a better build quality, the plastic used on the...

“The GFX-707...”

published 25/06/2000

Progreat choice, great sound.

ContraCan be a little confusing, some buttons a bit too ...

This is a nice little guitar effects processor, and with its smooth expression pedal, its my favourite toy. The beauty is, I've had it for almost a year now and there are still functions on it that I haven't got round to using yet! But maybe that is because some of them are rather confusing to...

after playing guitar for a year i bought my zoom 707 for £99, at first the effects sounded good, many sounds that i never thought could come from a guitar. however after more use, and trying other analogue, single effects pedals, i found that the zoom pedal took too much away from the sound. the...

“Details on the 707”

published 25/04/2001

ProWhat you get for the price is a good deal

Contratotal addiction to playing your instrument with it

The effects pedal, the 707, is probably the best multi effects pedal on the market today for under a hundred pounds. From a personal point of view i have owned one for under a year and i believe that it has more than paid itself in duty for the price i got it for. A small problem is the fact that...

Excellent

published 03/01/2008

Absoultely bloody marvellous!!! This bit of kit does all of the above AND, as for being badly built and "plasticky", I've knocked mine about A LOT AND even got it jammed under a pub fire-door during a post-gig quick getaway! (the door was in more danger of damage than the Zoom!). Belieive me, this is a rock-solid unit, if I can't break it in 6 years of serious abuse, it must be well made! Great for live AND recording .... amazing for the money! Hank.
